She's called Dalian and has a big lock hanging in front of her chest. She herself is the entrance to the "Bibliotheca of Dantalian" which contains the prohibited "Phantom Books".

This is funny cause I was just reading the manga the other day. I'm crossing my finger for some impressive visual because AS totally fell short on that part.

Wtf. That's unusual. I wonder if they're gonna style it similar to Shikabane Hime.

Well from the image above, i don't really see anything bad with Gainax doing a novel adaptation anime. But then i won't comment any further about good or bad Gainax is until i see a PV or more images from the anime itself.

Sounds much more interesting than Panties & Garterbelt or whatever their other project is.

there are a couple of chapters from the light novel translated into english, for those who can't wait and want to get ahead...

not really liked the first chapter that I read; maybe I should try reading a couple more, maybe not. however, I want to think that this may turn out slightly more interesting in animated form, especially with great visuals. It has nice settings, the character designs of the girl pleases my eyes (really hoping they get this right) and there is room for action scenes.

not sure of what to expect, though; but I want to see nice-looking and eye-candy artwork out of this show.

At the the German convention Connichi there was a panel about the anime. I wrote an article about it on my website including some photos of the costumes:
